Woven SIM with Karastan LE12

Karastan LE12 is a new rapid prototyping program from Karastan Contract. The Web application features an industry first — believable woven carpet simulation. The month-long lead times for custom woven products are cut to seconds, letting you view custom colored woven designs immediately. LE12 currently features Karaloc and Wilton products, with Axminster to follow this Autumn.

One of the biggest challenges of this particular project was that carpet weaving is still an old technology. It's mechanized, but not computerized, making it difficult to introduce into our digital world. A huge thanks goes out to Jackie Dettmar and the design team at Karastan for collaborating so diligently with us to introduce this innovation.

especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
